My introduction to yoga began when my friend Jennifer Taylor returned from her 200 hour training and taught classes at Blackfly Crossfit. The physical and cardiovascular challenges to the practice in addition to the mental and spiritual benefits kept me coming back for more. I was drawn to the energy of Baptiste Power yoga while taking Jennifer’s classes after she had returned from those additional trainings. Completing my 100 hour Baptiste Power yoga Level 1 training in Sedona, AZ, 2/27/16, was a life changing experience. I wanted to share that energy and self empowerment with others. Practicing yoga complements all of the other outdoor activities I enjoy including mountain biking, trail running, snowshoeing, downhill and cross country skiing. The serenity of stand up paddle boarding and practicing yoga on the water is one of my favorite outdoor adventures.
